111  Engineering Graphics (1-5-3). The development of the theory of projection as applied to orthographic, isometric, oblique, and perspective drawing forms, freehand techniques used to graphically delineate design ideas and specifications, conventional practices used in making working drawings, and coverage of descriptive geometry.

230  Surveying (3-3-4). The study of engineering measurements and errors, theory and use of instruments, topographic, construction, and route surveying, and applications of measurement in civil engineering. PR: MATH 220, ENGR 111.

313  Engineering Mechanics I (5-0-5). Statics and dynamics of particles and rigid bodies, using vector approach and calculus methods. Forces, reactions, equilibrium, centroids, moments, structures, distributed loads, frames and machines, and friction are covered in statics. Dynamics covers kinematics and kinetics of particles and rigid bodies, work, energy, momentum. CO: MATH 230. 

314  Engineering Mechanics II (3-0-3). Mechanics of materials covering normal and shear stress and strain, distributed loads, second moment, torsion, beam theory, combined stresses, column theory, pressure vessels, bolted, riveted and welded connections. PR: ENGR 313.

315  Engineering Economics (3-0-3). The study of the relative economy of engineering alternatives, compound interest in relation to calculation of annual costs, present worth and prospective rates of returns on investments, methods of depreciation, sinking cost, increment cost, general studies with emphasis on retirement and replacement of equipment, consideration of taxes, public works, and manufacturing costs as related to economic solutions of engineering proposals. Principles of engineering ethics are presented and related to costing. PR: Sophomore standing.
